a society founded at Delft, Holland (1797-1801), for the purpose "of promoting the union of all Christian denominations which admit the divinity of Jesus Christ and redemption by the merits of his passion." It was established by two members of the Reformed Church, one of whom (Onder van Vyngaard-Ceanzius) was burgomaster of Delft. It separated "worship" from "teaching," and used a liturgy framed after that of the Church of England. It numbered at one time some 3000 members, mostly Mennoites, but has now nearly, if not quite died out. See an apology and sketch of the society in the work Hei genootschap Christo Sacrum vinnen Delft (Leyden, 1801). Hase, Ch. History, § 486; Wetzer u.Welte, Kirchenlexikon, 2:514; Herzog, Real-Encyklop. 2:688.
